“I’m way more confident. Not only in the gym, but just in general. I feel so much better about how I look and much stronger I am.”

Josh felt weighed down by his unhealthy relationship with food.

His diet, which he described as “uncontrolled and unplanned”, was playing havoc with his health.

Carrying around 105kg (233 lbs) of weight, he knew something had to change so he could put an end to his overindulgent eating.

In only 21 weeks, Josh has redefined his approach to nutrition entirely. Food is no longer an emotional crutch for him, but rather a source of strength.

Along with diet control, Josh’s time at U.P. has helped shift priorities in all areas of his life. He’s exercising, eating well, and his blood pressure readings have vastly improved.

What area of your life do you feel U.P. have impacted the most? 

Hands down, my nutrition.

Being conscious of what goes in my body and the nutritional value of everything. It’s been a huge game-changer for me.

Even weighing everything down to the gram has had a big impact on me. I’m now eating food for a purpose, not just to satisfy a craving or for the taste, but for its nutritional value.

I’ve learned how to cook healthy food. So, while watching everything I eat, I’ve also learned how to prepare food so I enjoy it.

The gains in muscle mass and strength have been great too – but I’d say that comes second to what it’s done for my nutrition. 


And how do your diet and lifestyle now compare to before you started at U.P.? 

I wasn’t getting the physical activity my body needed. I was eating food that wasn’t benefiting my body.

Now, I am very disciplined. Of course, the biggest change was my relationship with food. It went from being extremely uncontrolled and unplanned to very planned and very detailed.

My food used to control me; now I control the food. I don’t go based on whatever I’m craving. I am focused on its nutritional value and how it affects my body.

I now look at food as fuel. In terms of strength – my arms feel stronger and I can do pull-ups with added weight. Whereas before, I could barely do any pull-ups.

So, my strength has significantly increased.  

Has the U.P. program provided any unexpected benefits? 

Yeah, so many.

I have more energy and I’m much stronger. Something that I didn’t expect, though, was so many people have come up to me and give me kudos and congratulations for what I’ve done. And it feels good.

I really wasn’t expecting to inspire people the way that I have.

I was expecting my plan to be worse than it actually was. I was expecting myself to always feel hungry and tired, and have to eat foods that I didn’t like. But that’s not been the case at all.

I enjoy the food that I eat, I have energy, and I’m able to perform and push myself in the gym.

I was expecting all those things to be huge challenges, but I’ve been able to keep it up, and it’s honestly been unexpected. 


How do you feel the transformation that you’ve completed has impacted you as a person? 

I’m way more confident, not only in the gym but just in general.

As I walk around, I feel better about how I look; I feel better about how I feel; I feel better about having more strength.

It has made me more disciplined as a person. The discipline has been huge. The discipline that the program has instilled in my life is something that I’ll take with me forever, and it feels good.

It’s also unquestionably impacted my health because it has forced me to make my health a priority in my life. I’ve got lower blood pressure, more muscle mass, more energy and improved cardiovascular health.

That’s all down to my training plan.  

What impact did your trainer have on you during your transformation? 

My trainer was amazing.

He had confidence in me and gave me all the motivation I needed when I was short of energy.

Also, just holding me accountable, checking in with me, making sure I’m sticking to the program and eating the right food. All the little things make a big difference.

He made sure I stayed focused when it got difficult. It’s great to have that, because when you’re on your own it’s a lot more difficult to have that push and drive.

I also think my trainer believed in me more than I believed in myself. He probably thought, all right, this guy can push a little bit harder.

Sometimes you don’t know what you’re capable of, so my trainer was invaluable in that respect.  


Would you recommend U.P. and why? 

I would definitely recommend U.P. because it will challenge you, but it will also reward you.

However, the reward is always worth it. It’s really beneficial to have a program that basically lays out every detail.

So, if you’re a person that needs a little extra push or just wants a plan done the right way, Ultimate Performance are ideal.
